Jason Dufner Career Highlights Video
Driver: Ping G400 Max (10.5 degrees))
Ping continues to raise the bar when it comes to producing incredible drivers and the Ping G400 Max is a prime example. The G400 Max driver gives players additional distance by adding forgiveness and confident stability. The large 460cc head was created with Ping’s Dragonfly Technology; which means a thinner crown and a lowered CG position. Those features with a thin and flexible forged face helps increase ball speed and maximize MOI. The result is longer and straighter drives down the fairway. The G400 has a beautiful domed crown with integrated bolder turbulators for reduced drag to generate impressive clubhead speed and velocity. The Ping G400 Max is one of the best drivers on the market, offering phenomenal features to improve any player’s game.
- The newer thin crown and strategically positioned CG, maximize MOI for longer, straighter drives.
- A textured face increases friction and reduces ball spin.
- The domed crown reduces drag for an increase in clubhead speed and ball velocity.
- A forged face flexes more to improve ball speed for consistently long and straight drives.
The Titleist 917F2 fairway wood features technology to maximize distance, forgiveness, and precise customization for every player. The club features Active Recoil Channel 2.0, a design aspect that was improved to flex more at impact to reduce spin and increase ball speed. Dialing in trajectory and spin is in the hands of the player more than ever with SureFit CG adjustability. In addition to the improved feel and sound, players will likely see a jump in distance. Additionally, the fairway wood has a variable thickness face insert, which gives off-center shots greater distance, making it a very forgiving wood. The Titleist 917F2’s softer feel and more muted sound than most fairway woods on the market make it a top choice for players on the Tour.
The Titleist 915F fairway wood features a shallow face to deliver long distance and all around performance off the tee and turf. It features a lower spin rate and a higher ball speed from the forward positioned Active Recoil Channel and ultra thin face. The low CG and high MOI design increases forgiveness and the SureFit Tour Hosel technology allows for a precision fit. This simple yet effective fairway wood makes the Titleist 915F an easy choice when it comes to setting up your bag.
- Surefit CG adjustability allows the player to dial in trajectory and spin.
- Active Recoil Channel 2.0 improves flex at impact to reduce spin and increase ball speed.
- The face insert gives off-center shots greater distance, making it one of the most forgiving fairway woods available.
- A softer feel and more muted sound was integrated for appeal.
Irons: National Custom Works (3-9 iron)
The irons that Jason currently has in his bag are fully customized by National Custom Works. You can reach them on their website: http://nationalcustomworks.com/master-craftsmen. There are very few details about the set of irons customized to Jason’s request. The 4- and 5-iron are kind of a lower CG profile, and the 6-iron through pitching wedge are more of a mid-CG profile. It was noted that Jason wanted something to knock it down and fly the ball a little bit flatter with the 6 through pitch, and then with the 4 and 5, he was looking for something a little easier to launch and hold greens.
Wedge: National Custom Works (PW, GW and LW)
The wedge that Jason currently has in his bag is also part of a custom set from National Custom Works. You can reach them on their website: http://nationalcustomworks.com/master-craftsmen. There are very few details about the wedge that was customized to Jason’s request. The pitching wedge was said to have a mid-CG profile. Jason seems to have wanted something to hit the ball a little bit flatter with the pitching wedge.
Putter: Scotty Cameron T5S Tour Only
This putter is one of Scotty’s newest designs that was recently released in 2017. It features a smaller, more compact head shape than the X7M. The center shaft design creates a perfectly face-balanced weighting for effortless repeatability. The technology of the lightweight Black Anodized Aluminum Core and heavy SSS Outer body create extreme perimeter weighting for enhanced feel and forgiveness. This putter is definitely a treasure to come by, since it’s a 2017 Tour-Only Prototype.
A similar putter to the T5S for amateur players is the Scotty Cameron Futura and is show above.
Ball: Titleist Pro V1x
